Russian news agency Interfax informed of Vladimir Putin’s decisionThe telegram is based on the statements of Yuri Ushakov. The adviser to the Russian President admitted that he hopes that the epidemiological situation will allow the meeting to be organized on a consistent basis.

Yuri Ushakov confirmed that the Indonesian authorities invited Vladimir Putin to the G20 summitDespite many pressures from Western countries. The event is scheduled to take place on the island of Bali from November 15-16, 2022.

In April, US President Joe Biden made a personal appeal to Joko Widodo To prevent Vladimir Putin from participating in this year’s summit. Moreover, the American leader also wanted to completely exclude Russia from the G-20 coordination. However, diplomatic efforts turned out to be ineffective.

Let us recall that on April 29, 2022, Joko Widodo, in a telephone conversation with Volodymyr Zelensky, invited him to the G20 summit. About a month later, on May 27, the President of Ukraine confirmed that he would appear. He also stated that he hoped not to meet with Vladimir Putin in Indonesia.

But the voice of the West does not agree with the participation of the Russian president in the G20 summit. European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen believes it is important for Western leaders to personally tell Vladimir Putin what they think of his recent actions in Ukraine.
